'Big Brother 14' Spoilers: The HGs Prepare for the Coaches to Enter the Game
Wednesday, August 1, 2012
Inside the Big Brother 14 house, the coaches are all making big plans for next week. And those plans seem to involve playing the game.
SPOILER WARNING: This article contains details from the Big Brother 14 live feeds.
As I've written before, it's obvious the coaches know that they're coming into the game this Thursday (or at least being given the option to come into the game). The diary room has clearly been asking them questions about this, and if that sounds like the producers are manipulating this game to benefit the coaches, they are. It's painfully obvious that, just like last season, the producers are trying to fix the game so that a veteran (probably Janelle) can finally win this game.
But anyway, enough of my conspiracy theories. Here are the four major developments in terms of the coach twist.
Janelle Makes Deals
Janelle talks like her coming into the game is a guarantee and has already tried making deals with Britney and Dan to stick together once it happens, even talking about a possible coaches alliance.
Janelle Lies to the Newbies
While Janelle is telling Britney that she is 100 percent certain about playing, she's actively lying to the newbies, claiming that the contract she signed said she would not play the game and would not go to the jury house. Janelle is the kind of person who is so good at lying that I think she genuinely believes the lies.
Britney offered a hilarious story last night to illustrate Janelle's powers. Britney and Ashley were in the HoH room, and Janelle came in and, in an effort to turn Britney against Frank, Janelle said that Ashley told her that she overheard Frank say he was coming after Wil. And then Ashley agreed with it.
As Britney describes it, Ashley later said she didn't remember overhearing anything, but that since Janelle told her she said it, it must be true. Janelle literally Inceptioned Ashley, planting an idea in her head and making her think it was hers.
The Dan-Danielle-Britney-Shane Alliance
These four had a long chat Tuesday night where Dan and Britney basically told their players that the coaches will be coming into the game, trying to ensure that they will stick together and have a strong, trustworthy Final 4 deal. Britney expressed some apprehension about whether or not she'd choose to play the game, but ultimately decided that she'd regret it for the rest of her life if she didn't try.
Dan Tries to Sway Ian
Late Tuesday night (or early Wednesday morning), Dan and Ian had a long chat where Dan was testing the waters by talking to Ian about the possibility of the coaches entering the game. Ian obviously doesn't like it (his odds of winning go from 1 in 7 to 1 in 11) and he suspects many other newbies won't like it either. He says the newbies would all be shocked because none of them think it could actually happen because it would be so unfair to them and completely change the entire structure of the season (both of which are true, which makes me also hate this inevitable twist).
However, Ian told Dan that he would be open to working with the coaches in some capacity since he has better relationships with them. Was this the truth? Or was Ian simply lying to get in good with the coaches? Since Ian loves this show so much and knows everything about it, I really hope he's smart enough to realize working with the coaches will result in a repeat of last season where a coach wins and Ian becomes the new Adam.
That's the status of everyone right now regarding the big twist. As for this week's vote, it seems like Frank is definitely going home. Danielle and Wil are both lying to Frank and Boogie, claiming that they are open to keeping him, but it's just a ruse to make Boogie's team feel confident so that, when Frank gets blindsided, Ian will hopefully be dazed and confused when playing in Thursday's HoH competition. At the very least Wil seems to be open to turning on his team (and Janelle) next week, but by then it could be too late.
Also, it sounds like the diary room interviewers were really pushing Frank to confront Joe and Janelle about their lies in a Willie-style blow-up, but he's been talked down from that by the other HGs who think it would backfire and make him look unstable. That's true, because even Joe and Janelle know about this producer-inspired blow-up, and they want it to happen.
Getting rid of Frank is what the coaches want because they know that he's their biggest threat. I only hope that, in the next 24 hours, the other HGs get clued in to the fact that the coaches are coming back and unite against them.
